yes this is the type of lens people use, but this one is a bit beat up.

For one thing, it's not in any kind of standard mount.

I could probably get a mount made but the question is, is it the same glass and element arrangement that others are using? Basically Im wondering if it is recognizable. The glass seems fine.

I don't know- look here about halfway down http://captjack.exak...m/Isco page.htm
If that's it, it suggests it's an objective, not an adapter.
Seems it was intended as some sort of trick lens.
That example seems to lack the iris.
It has a rather small protruding rear element, not the large barrel you'd need to attach to a filter ring.
I'm not sure this is an anamorphic adapter at all. I certainly wouldn't gamble much money on it when there are plenty of proper ones on eBay.

OK, thing #2: It's just a 50mm. Are you going to shoot a whole show on a 50? Odds on finding the rest of a matching set are nil.

that was another consideration. so when you get something like a bolex anamorphot, there is no so called focal length to it, its just something you add to the lens you are using?

But this is also an attachment. It would have originally came with a 50mm still lens, probably with a Nikon mount.

If it covers a 50mm 24x36mm format lens it will cover a16mm 16R lens.

The problem is building a bracket for attaching the lens to the camera.
